alcohol banned due to Facebook party!
What? Party with no alcohol?? How lame is that?! But the police fear that if alcohol is not banned, it would be harder to control the partygoers. Apparently, 10,000 people will attend the party after an open invitation to it was posted on Facebook. The event so-called “Party at the Beach 2008 – Torbay” invites people to join the party in the English seaside town of Torbay. More than 4000 people have already said they are attending the event, which says its aim is “to get as many party goers and ravers as we possibly can in one location on July 4″.
The posted invite read: “‘In order for this to work we need everyone to tell all your friends, book the night off, wait for the exact location to be revealed, then head on down with as much alcohol/music as you can afford, and if your hard core a tent might come in handy.” South Devon police commander Superintendent Chris Singer told the UK’s Daily Mail : ‘The event is likely to cause disruption and difficulty for our community. The supply and consumption of alcohol would add to those difficulties. It may therefore be necessary for me to apply to magistrates to instigate the provisions of Section 160 of the Licensing Act 2003.’”
